First thing that came up in my mind was the voltage detector, replaced it and the machine boots again. But video output is totally mangled. Checked […]

Amiga 1200 without composite

Composite of machine not working. First I though it was the CXA1145 video encoder, because all signal where present, but no composite output. The voltage of the CHROMA_OUT was very low. So the question.. what is causing this? I replaced all small components (resistors & capacitors) between CHROMA_OUT (CXA1145 pin 15) and CHROMA_IN (CXA1145 pin […]

Solution The voltage at the voltage detector (U14) was getting under the threshold of 4.3V, which causes that the reset signal was pulled down, and causes the black/grey screen. I replaced the Voltage detector (u14), the 10K resistor (R629) and capacitor (C629). The last two […]
